Herbert is absolutely awesome. Overcame so absolutely brutal play calling. I sing6 think they'll win the West or anything but they're moving in the right direction at last. Plenty of talent, both young and veteran, on both sides of the ball.

Ravens stealing a win in Detroit with a record setting 66 yard walk-off FG was crazy.

Iím gonna change the car in a few weeks but havenít decided what to get. I like those new Hyundai Tucsonís but theyíre only available in petrol. Iím also going to have a look at one of the new type Ford Kugas and while I like the Seat Alteca thereís very few of them about. My issue is that I donít know what the future will hold for diesel cars in 4 years time when Iím changing again. Any advice??

If you like the Ateca, take a look at the Skoda or Karoq or the Tiguan too. They're 95% the same car. Bought a Karoq in June as our first family car and I'm very happy with it.

Over here, obviously SEAT is incredibly popular, but it seems like half the cars on the road these days, and an even larger proportions of new ones, are crossover SUVs.
My last couple of cars have been SUVs and Iím thinking of going back to something like an estate for my next car. Like you say nearly all cars on the roads nowadays are SUV crossover type cars and Iím kind of bored with them now. In reality they arenít any more practical than the smaller hatchbacks they are all based on and apart from the fact you sit higher up there isnít really any advantage in having one.
I like the look of the Corolla Sports Touring Hybrid or the new Octavia Estate. Far more practical for a lot less money than an SUV.

Ah, in fairness they're a much more comfortable drive in terms of space and as a family car where you're throwing prams and bags and high chairs and whatever else at them, they're hard to beat.

Agree on the estates though, fantastic cars and bake for money. The Octavia and the Leon estates are great cars.

AJ completely found out again, like so many of us have long predicted.. Usyk is phenomenal. Lomachenko but 220 lbs. His head movement is insane.

Jameis definitely looked more like his old self. Couldn't resist an ill-judged heave.

Derrick Henry is a monster.

Lamar is a generational talent and anyone who says otherwise has nothing to point to other than race, exposing themselves for what we all know then to be.

British citizen avails of NHS. Shocker.

British Citizen who voluntarily and illegally entered a war zone to side with a murderous Islamic death cult has medical bills paid for by taxpayer

I didn't realise criminals or suspected criminals were barred from availing of services offered by the NHS. Can you point to the legislation that bans it please?

Absolutely..... happy to oblige

If you commit treason or espionage you can have your citizenship revoked which would then disqualify you from availing of NHS services

And has the individual you're referring to had her citizenship revoked? Or been so much as charged with an offence?

No, so shut the f**k up.

Watched the North Water there... it's grim and Colin Farrell's accent is well I don't really know what it is but it was enjoyable and each episode is quite long so will fill a bit of time I'd give it a solid 7 out of 10.

It was on in America earlier in the summer so you can get the whole lot.

Where's the stock from? They really need to clamp down on some of the advertising and labeling laws about whiskey. Distilleries and bonders can source stock from any distillery they want and package it up whatever way they like.

I think the boom in Irish whiskey at the minute is absolutely fantastic but almost everything in a bottle labelled "Irish whiskey" right now is still coming out of Midleton, Bushmills or Cooley. You'd be hard pressed to know that from some of the labels, especially some of the new distilleries as they sell stock from somewhere else whilst waiting for their own to age.

"He should have blown on 5 mins of injury time"

Why??? He's under no obligation to. The added time is always referred to as "a minimum of..." They was a VAR check after the 90. If you're crying about 21 seconds you need a long, hard look at yourself.

In 2001, Ireland  beat Netherlands 1-0. Jason McAteer scoring the winner.

20 feckiní years! Scary.

2nd half shown on the big screen at Slane...brilliant. McAteer's goal replayed again and again.

is that the game Keane hammered somebody right at the beginning? Mind the goal well

Keane took Overmars out first tackle. Kluivert put up a token effort of protest without wanting to get involved with Keane. 

https://twitter.com/DonalCuddy/status/1268643345338900481?s=20

The tackle has been mythologised I'm Irish sporting history as some sort of Titanic event where Keane took out their most dangerous player. In reality, Overmars was done and had a great game.
